Welcome to The Linger Longer...
Recently Named One of
"The 9 Best Ice Cream Parlors
To build community by bringing people together, to provide a safe & inviting haven for area youth, and to preserve the history of this building and soda fountains, in general. We are working to become a sustainable business so that future generations can experience the charms of The Linger Longer!
"Step back in time" to experience our authentic soda fountain - one of the few remaining. Continuing tradition, we're in the original 106-year-old building with a beautiful tin ceiling. We still use the same soda fountain and back-bar. Hand-mixing fountain drinks with spigots and pumps allows patrons to experience old-fashioned deliciousness. After enjoying dessert or a sandwich, browse our collection of over 2,000 Dr Pepper collectibles and antiques. It is the second largest public collection in the United States! Plan on having time to play pinball etc. in our extensive game room or relax in the outdoor courtyard. And don't forget to try the Green River!
(For those of you who have not yet had the opportunity...Green River is a delicious non-caffeinated beverage that tastes a lot like lime Jello/green popsicles/lemon-lime soda. It was created in Chicago in 1919, apparently named for the Chicago River, which, at that time, was a lovely shade of green! We sell a lot of it...we've even had customers travel over 100 miles just to try it!)
We Accept Cash or Local Checks Only...Or Use the Bennington State Bank ATM That's Right Around the Corner.
